Value investing works. 80+ years of stock market data proves this without a doubt. In fact, small cap value stocks beat out the market by an average of 6% per year.

Doesn’t sound like much? Consider this: $10,000 invested when you start your career will on average be worth $95,000 after 33 years. Barely enough for 1 years’ living expenses. Same $10K invested in small cap value stocks will see you retire with a million dollar portfolio (Ibbotson Associates study of asset class returns between Jan 1969 and Dec 2002)

But how do you use this in practice to grow your wealth? How do you pick best stocks to buy now and create an optimal portfolio that works in good times and bad?

What about risk? Isn’t screening for the right value stocks in small capitalization companies too much work?

I Give You Outstanding Stock Picks
So You Keep Growing Your Portfolio
